Future opera singers are easily identified at birth due to their multi-octave crying and graceful bows as they emerge from the womb. Check out how far these tiny miracles have come with today's Groupon for a side-front orchestra ticket to Faust, presented by Opera Birmingham. Choose one of the following performances: Friday, January 28, at 7:30 p.m. or Sunday, January 30, at 2:30 p.m.
Faust has been peddling his soul to Satan since 1859 in Gounod's famous adaptation of the well-known German legend. The opera is sung in lilting French with an English translation projected above the stage, ideal for American-speaking audiences and the incurably literate. This devilish production steps into the spotlights at the Wright Center of Samford University, featuring the Opera Birmingham Chorus and the Alabama Symphony Orchestra. Although Opera Birmingham has belted out dramatic descants for more than 50 years, this marks its first staging of Faust in more than three decades.
